This mythical creature is surrounded with a variety of strange legends. Allegedly, the Jackalope can imitate any sound, even human voices. They are said to only breed during hail storms, conveniently accounting for their rarity, and the females can be milked. The idea of the creature originated in Douglas, Wyoming where a man named Douglas Herrick created the first Jackalope by taxidermy. Douglas sells Jackalope hunting licenses, valid only on June 31 (a nonexistent date) and for hunters with an IQ between 50 and 72. Despite the jocular nature of the legend, the Jackalope has inadvertently come to represent the American West.
